ASPRIN LOW DOSAGE 81 MG

Postby john » Mon Apr 28, 2008 12:13 pm

A QUESTION FOR ANYONE...........

I'VE BEEN TAKING LOW DOSAGE ASPRIN FOR YEARS AS A BLOOD THINNER...........AND OF COURSE IT WORKS...I CAN ALWAYS TELL WHEN I GO FOR BLOOD WORK.........I DO BLEED EASILY FROM MY DAILY DOSAGE...

MY NEXT QUESTION ( I WILL RUN THIS BY MY DOCTOR ON MY NEXT VISIT ) IS IT ADVISEABLE TO CONTINUE TAKING ASPRIN WITH LE PROBLEMS ???? CAN THIS ADD TO THE LEAKAGE AROUND MY LEGS???
I KNOW IF I SCRATCH TOO HARD MY LEGS WILL BLEED VERY EASILY AND IN MY MIND THE ASPRIN MAY BE CAUSING IT TO LEAK MUCH EASIER.....


DOES THIS MAKE SENSE ????...................PLEASE ADVISE

THANK YOU..........JOHN

Hey John :)

From what I know about lymphedema, the aspirin should not have any effect on it.

The only analgesics we have to be careful with are the NSAID's.

Aspirin doesn't have any effect on the lymph system.

BTW...do you also have vascular insufficiency?
